Emerson, a 13-year-old home-educated boy, lives with his parents in the snowy Canadian countryside. One day Emerson has to quit the idyllic family life and go to a local highschool where he develops an unusual relationship with his homosexual teacher Don. The movie accentuates intimity. We can watch Emerson’s wet dreams, Kaya’s cuckoldry or Don’s sexual adventures. Whole New Thing was awarded on Canadian film festivals for outstanding performance, screenplay and the best Canadian feature.
